8 years as a Combat Engineer slot filler, then 30+ years as a design engineer, carpenter, aerospace machinest, shop monkey, gunsmith & armorer. Semi-retired due to health problems a few years ago, so I spend alot of my time researching, designing, redesigning, occassionaly sleeping.... & trying to not annoy the neighbors with power tools at 3AM when an idea strikes. LOL ;)

Interests: Gunsmithing, robotics, RC vehicles, slowly getting into AUV-UAV-ROV as funds allow. I have a passion for old technology... turn of the century tooling, pre-WW2 firearms ( old top-break revolvers are an addiction), and my biggie is early Lake & Holland submarines, Civil War rams & ironclads, & the midget subs of WW1 & WW2. I do alot of model making, so I'm really looking foward to that laser cutter! :)
